The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Some recent movies…the good and the bad…

There’s good news and bad news here. The bad news is that I actually paid money for Reno 911. The good news is that Zodiac was so good, it more than made up for the time and money I pretty much wasted on Reno. Pretty much. So, Reno 911. Not so good. Nothing memorable about it, except maybe when the guy runs right through the giant whale. That was pretty funny…few chuckles, but mostly just crude, lame humor in a movie that went on for too long. Eh. Zodiac on the other hand… I haven’t been so wrapped up in a movie in a long time. Honestly - it had me completely enthralled. The story is great, acting is great, and you do your absolute best to not get up and go to the bathroom during its almost 3 hour run-time. Really though, check it out if you haven’t already, or if you owe it to yourself after you wasted your $9.50 on Wild Hogs already. Hmm. Just watched Half Nelson last night. I know it got amazing reviews and Gosling certainly deserved the best actor nomination he got for it…but wow, was it depressing. Would have been nice to get a few more laughs throughout, it was just really taking a toll on me about 3/4 of the way through. Kind of like how Pursuit of Happyness did the same thing. It was like, alright, nice movie, but for God’s sake let’s move it along and enjoy ourselves and stop crying for a minute. Eh. I’ll just stick with my recent purchase of The Departed deluxe edition DVD.
